Quote of the Day

We should remind [Catholic League President Bill] Donohue that there is no child sexual abuse crisis in gay community centers, neighborhoods, churches or social organizations. This nightmare [of the Roman Catholic clergy sex abuse scandal] has to do with Catholic pedophile priests and those who served as their enablers. The Catholic League thinks it is mounting a defense, but it is only exacerbating the pain felt by the defenseless who were taken advantage of by authority figures in the church.

What is the deal with Bill Donohue? Why does he hate gay people? I was very offended by what he said about the abuse victims in Ireland. He pretty much said that they were delinquents and they deserved what they got and he felt sorry for the bishops because people were trying to make them feel bad.
